The Inn was conveniently located, and the innkeepers were indeed very nice people. I would agree with other reviewers who comment that the place could do with some updating, and with some cleaning. The guest rooms, at least on the first floor, all share one bathroom, and the shower curtain was moldy. The breakfast is pretty underwhelming--some pastries and coffee.... More

The innkeepers were very nice and kind. We loved sitting on the porch looking at the lake. The continental breakfast was simple but delicious. Everything was comfortable. They had a small private beach where we enjoyed just sitting and relaxing!

My family and i stayed at this inn for two days. We didnt feel very welcomed and the house is very old and not kept up very well. If there were other people there (which there wasn't)we would have to share a bathroom which is wierd and unsanitary. In the bathroom there was used bar soap (disgusting)and half empty bottles...

My mom and I stayed here for one night. The owner, Lori, was so kind and helpful. We had a room with two beds and a shared bath(luckily nobody else was there to share). This house is very old and needs some updating, but with the coupon and a rate of $85 a night, it met its value.

If you're looking for a high-class luxury hotel with a bar downstairs and partying all around, this is NOT the place for you. Yes, the Inn may look a little...run down...when you first approach it. However, this is hands down one of the BEST places I have ever stayed. The inn owners are absolutely wonderful people -very knowledgable about the... More

Great people and great location. The history of the house is great and the owners are really helpful and go out of their way. The biggest issue we had was that there is no breakfast...at this bed and breakfast. Just some bagels...which is different from other bed and breakfast experiences.

My husband and I have stayed at this bed and breakfast on two separate occasions. We are so pleased with the rooms, and the price. The owners, Pat and Lori, are very personable and informative about the island. They have been running the bed and breakfast for years. They keep a clean and inviting home, very historic and beautifully decorated.... More

We really enjoyed our stay at the inn. Pat and Lori were wonderful hosts. We went on an owl watching expedition with another couple and listened to Pat's owl calls (which didn't attract any owls by the way). However, it was a nice hike and great fun. We will definitely stay there on our next trip to the island.

We stayed in the Pilot House room (two double beds and roomy room). The beds were just-right firm and the bedding a delightful collection of quilts that made us feel like we were in an historic place. Pat (the bird watching expert) and Lori (brownie-maker expert) made us feel at home, but they did not hover. Pat did ask to... More

What a wonderful combination of people food and cocktails being able to walk upstairs after a good time was also great. The staff made our vacation. Best food and service on the island. The lobster roll mussels and steak salad all amazing
